"we are still getting bonding spots coming through" if you are referring to the dot and dab fixing areas then this may be because damp is penetrating through the plasterboard. This can either be because you did not allow enough time between fixing and painting or the boards have been fixed to an inherently damp wall.
Leave things until we get some drying weather and see if the problem persists.
